Here are two of the pieces with black deposits on the front.
I guess with the business of summer I had not cleaned my shot in a while. It was surprising to me how filthy it was and the horrific deposits on my beautiful silver.
I took the shot out and put it in a colander with soap and washed and rinsed several times. I also cleaned to barrel with soap and water.
Another way I rinse and clean my shot is to use a COLA type beverage. Just pour it in let is sit for a hour or more, agitate then rinse it off. I usually rinse my shot after every use and clean it after every several times. I have never let it get to this point before!
For the blackened silver pieces all I did was give them a little hand polish.
Unfortunately I do not have a before picture of this one as I panicked when it came out and had to make sure it would come off so I began to clean it before I even took any picture. (the smooth section which is hard to see as it has become reflective was completely black)
Luckily nothing was ruined.
